The LA Times:
The last time this two-mile stretch of Burbank Boulevard in North Hollywood was repaved, Dwight D. Eisenhower was president, Walter Alston was the rookie manager of the Brooklyn Dodgers and "From Here to Eternity" took the Oscar for best picture. And the two men who presided over Monday's celebratory asphalt-laying -- Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and Councilman Tom LaBonge
Here are the funny parts of an otherwise boring story;
1) Let me continue the sentence pasted above to it's entirety -- And the two men who presided over Monday's celebratory asphalt-laying --Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and Councilman Tom LaBonge -- were both still in diapers.
2) After offering brief comments, Villaraigosa and LaBonge donned hardhats and construction vests and clambered aboard a giant paving machine. If the patch of asphalt near the McDonald's on Burbank Boulevard remains rough, motorists know who to blame.
So much for objectivity...
